31.3.1933 - 18.10.2019 Dearest Mum, my one and only. Now that we are apart, I still carry you in my heart. Your love, my love is eternal love. I miss you my darling sweetest thing. When you reached out to hold hands, you fell asleep in warmth and safety. Without you, I would be nothing at all.
Your good son, hugs and kisses Henk.
